How to make wrinkles on your amigurumi [tutorial]

When I published the latest “Patterns from other website“, I told you that I had added some wrinkles to Oogie Boogie in order to give him a little bit more details. I was very happy to know that a lot of you liked those wrinkles, included Oogie’s pattern designer : Nichole’s nerdy knots.

So, I made a short tutorial you can use if you’d like to add wrinkles to your Oogie too, or any other amigurumi (I think of dress pleats for example) 

In order to do so, I used Oogie’s back, as it was still “un-wrinkled”  :D

I pinched the “fabric” between my fingers and pinned the wrinkle thus formed.

and repeated that step as many time as necessary

Once everything is pinned into place, thread your tapestry (or wool) needle with the yarn used to make Oogie. Insert it it his body and pull it out next to a wrinkle. Don’t forget to leave a piece of yarn hanging where you inserted your needle. (we basically use the same technique as to embroider amigurumi details

Then start to sew the sides of your wrinkles.

In order to make your seams invisible, be careful not to make too big stitches. (as in the example below)

You’d rather make small ones :

Go on like that with the other wrinkles

When your’re done, get your needle out exactly where you insert it at the beginning. Tie in a double knot, cut the excess of yarn and push the knot inside your Oogie with your needle eye.

    • At the end of the first section, click on the name of the designer “nichole nerdy knots”, that’s the direct link to the pattern (without the pleats)

    • Hi, I’m sorry but I’m not the designer of this pattern, this is just a tutorial to add pleats to the original design. Please contact Nichole’s nerdy knot who is its original designer.
